Forskningspresentation av Malin Oud, Director of China Programme, The Raoul Wallenberg Institute.
What does Xi Jinping mean when he talks about the rule of law? How does the Chinese leadership define multilateralism? Did you know that China’s Socialist Core Values include democracy and freedom? What is Document No. 9 and why does it reject universal values? And what is meant by “a community of shared future for mankind”? The Decoding China Dictionary, published in 2021, seeks to answer these questions and to serve as a guide to understanding the official Chinese meaning of key terms in international relations and development cooperation. The Dictionary is also an example of how critical analysis of political language can be made useful beyond the academic context. Malin Oud is one of the authors of the 2021 Dictionary, and will describe the making of book, and give an overview of the analysis of Chinese political language that underpins it.
In preparation for the seminar the audience is invited to read the introduction and some of the articles in the Decoding China Dictionary.
